  1. Bangalore traffic is CRAZY. Last time I was there I said the venue is only about 4km from where we were staying. It was pointed out that now in Bangalore you do not calculate in km but in time to destination.

  2. Biocon is a copy cat company with no original invention so far like all other pharma in India. Only when they face the music talk about traffic but forget that common man is facing this ordeal daily. They think that They should be immune to routine issues but nobody cares for common citizen.
    I wish all so called VIPs face this kind of mysic daily and get stuck in traffic and elsewhere for ever so that at least they donot have time to do corruption and break rules.
